Ordered a set of 1123 pistons and a complete gasket kit from their site on April. However there seems to be no way to track and emails go unanswered. I never ordered from them, and I don't know how long it should take from Japan to CA, but a month?

I would expect them to arrive soon, but since the Corona problem has started many airlines have either stopped flying or greatly reduced their capacity on many routes
This means other airlines still flying have picked up much more cargo etc, and obviously priority has been given to PPE medicine food etc before mail and courier are sent
One of my friends works for British Airways at London Heathrow airport in the aircraft loading section and he has said he has never seen so much cargo they are even flying some routes with both the holds and the cabins filled with goods and no passengers on board

Mitsuo from Cruzinimage emailed back and resent by way of DHL. I received everything in 2 weeks. The original order was shipped via Japan post and he has not heard back from them. If for some strange reason the original shipment arrives at my door I will offer the parts for sale here and then send the money to Cruzinimage. The parts are a complete gasket set and a 1123 piston kit with head gasket.

My son is in the Navy stationed in Japan. Mail takes a month to get there if sent postal. FedEx takes a week for final local delivery.

Hi,

I have been looking at the Cruzinimage products. I had ordered the gasket set and the cam chain but I wasn't sure if I should buy the piston kit as I don't know the history of the bike and not sure what has been done to the bike's engine. Did you have to bore the cylinder sleeve in order to install the 1123 piston kit?

Thank you.

The pistons don't go in there unless you bore it out.
